Soon after my first child was born, I stumbled across an article in Southern Living magazine that caught my eye.  The most beautiful children’s clothes were featured… and I called to make an appointment.  At that time, McCall Wilder was running her business from her home and I happily made my way over.  To be honest, I wanted one of everything that I saw.  I loved McCall Wilder Designs from the minute I set foot in her first shop.  I still do, and so I wanted to share with you what McCall has created.

 For me, it started with baptismal gowns and has continued through the years for casual and dressy occasions.  McCall Wilder Designs grows with a child.

I always love the details on the buttons.

McCall offers to change the pockets on holiday outfits so that you can wear the outfit year-round.

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child! 


There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”.
